Session: Enhancement and Enablers of Value Creation and Business Success: The 3 Cs Principle.

In this presentation I will share my reflections on the pillars of success for companies in general and particularly in the context of evolving from the analogical to the digital stage. I will discuss the role of Industry 4.0 technologies as enablers as well as how the 3Cs principles are at the core of success in the new generation of value-added networks and the implications for management.
